Can I draw few portraits and put them into one entry? Or I have to make several entries?

Pray, how come #2 and #3 on top row aren't caricatures with their clearly exaggerated facial features, while the examples under "caricatures" are very faithful to the facial features although with deformed body proportions?

I do not understand.

The bottom caricatures have full bodies so they are not portraits.

Some of the top row of portraits are caricatures too but for the purposes of PJ challenges where terms come from game assets portraits never have a full body (sprite) and are never just a the face (asset).
My point was that entries should be the face and the indication of the body (neck, shoulder, some chest area, etc)

Yesterday was the final day of the Lumberjack World Championships, this was the female logrolling champ.
I'd like to get around to doing the male one too, but I can't find any pictures of him.
All crits are appreciated.

Update:
Finished, at least for the night. Might return to it before the week's out with fresh eyes.

Pretty pleased with this one, will do a bit of AA, general polish, and make a prettier border.

As for the chosen athlete: he's Golda Apache 75 SH, the first A class (107 cm or shorter) Shetland Pony ever to break the two-minute ghost limit on a kilometre with his world record of 1.59,3. 172 heats, 120 victories.

Citation for his accomplishments and some photos (which I used for refs) at http://www.sukuposti.net/hevoset/golda-apache/76829

By the way can anyone find the #1c1c1c that PJ Image Specs claims is in there somewhere?

So uhhh does this mean 00:00 as in the first minute of Sunday (i.e. entries must be submitted before Sunday), or the first minute of Monday (i.e. Sunday 23:59 is the last minute you can submit your entry)?

Also, does "Pacific" stand for PST/UTC-8?

Look on the front page. You have to submit your entry before the countdown timer reaches zero.
